Excuse me for a minute while I unleash my inner dog lady, but I couldn't let this day pass without wishing the cutest Bichon Frise in town (of course I'm a little biased!), Boo Radley, a very happy birthday. Whew, and what a year it has been with her. Those of ya'll who know me are very well aware of the many health problems Boo Radley has had from day one. I mean what puppy has to have open heart surgery at eight months? I can promise you, not many. Looking back on her heart surgery seems like a walk in the park compared to her past year here in NYC with me. I'll spare ya'll the details of her health woes the last 12 months, and just say Boo Radley truly is a little miracle dog with more life and personality than I could possibly have imagined. I often say & truly believe that dogs teach you, for the first time in your life, to think about the well being of someone other than yourself, and that has been such an important lesson for me personally to learn. Fellow dog owners, wouldn't ya'll agree? Hope ya'll are having a wonderful Tuesday!
